Ben Elton’s first play is a fast-moving, witty satire of big business. “Lockheart Industries are making senior money. If God wanted to buy into their stock, he’d have to think twice and talk to his people. They have a profit curve wound so far round the room it looks like a Blue Peter Christmas Appeal”. But they’re bored, they want more. New ideas, new products – the next Pot Noodle!
That’s when whizzkid Philip comes up with Suck and Blow… Designer air! Perrier for the nostrils! Thanks to sassy advertising exec, Kirsten, the machines are a huge success, and sales massively exceed all projections. But when the world starts gasping, only the biggest suckers survive…”
As one reviewer said, “a very British look at man?s effect on the earth. It had me laughing from beginning to end”.
